Sail

There are many ways to enjoy a low-carbon adventure aboard the Amelie Rose; join us for a Traditional Taster Weekend, set sail on a longer Adventure Cruise, be part of the action at a Festival or Special Event or polish your sailing skills on a Training Course or Milebuilder Voyage

Learn

From belaying pins to topmasts, bowsprits to gun-tackles; traditional boats are awash with terms unfamiliar to the modern sailor.

Learn gaff rig sailing skills on any of our adventures, or join us for a training course or mile-builder voyage to experience prefessional quality training on the prettiest school boat in the Channel

Enjoy

No sailing experience is required and you can come on your own or share the adventure with friends, We have trips ranging in length from two days to over a fortnight and you can even book the whole boat for a very special custom celebration.

What people say:

  • Thanks very much for an enjoyable two days on the "Amelie Rose" on the 28th/29th. She's a lovely sail and was great to be able to help getting her cranked up and healing; good 'racing' with "Agnes" too... I think sailing on a working boat like yours is far more rewarding experience than being on one of the square-riggers as you can get more involved in working the boat and you can at least point them up wind a bit!
